Not enough people getting dead or impaled this season.


I have been watching the seasons out of order, so its hard for me to keep track of the body count, but I think you are right that there is less of a blood bath right now. Maybe they are working up to a massacre in the season finale, who knows. Something like that has to happen for Jimmy to return and take over the helm of the Dutton Ranch.

This is where they sent Jimmy in case anyone was wondering. It’s legendary in that world and a very real place.

Although kinda growing up in this culture (my dad more than me) I can tell you guys from Arizona HATE guys from Texas. Well everybody kind of hates guys from Texas.

Thanks for posting.

Jimmy, if you can make it on the 6666, you can make it anywhere....

I’m gonna just go ahead and say it.

This season sucks.

And it started from scratch in the first episode when there was literally no consequence at all from blowing up Beth and shooting Costner eleventy billion times at close range.

That was terribly lazy schmuckbait to end last season and this season has been a slog through the mud.

the entire Jimmy story? WTF cares?! I mean... there was just an Act Out on Jimmy jerking off a horse.

That was not one of Jimmy's finer moments.

Ya, its been a bit less explosive. But I see them building up some interesting storylines, including Dutton's political ambitions, probably colliding at some point with Jaime's real dad's desire to kill him, Beth infiltrating and trying to take down the massive development plan and, my favorite, the building up of Jimmy for his ultimate take over of the ranch in season 8.

Only a few episodes left, I don't see them topping last season's finale.

Last season was very similar to this one. Not a whole lot of fireworks until the end. I don’t mind the slower burn. The over the top stuff can be fun, but if they filled every episode with it then it would get stupid silly fast.

Things I hope happen soon:

Jamie kills his dad and sister and sells the ranch

Casey leaves his annoying wife for the other broad

They cancel the 1883 thing and make a spin off of RIP’s adolescent years

That’s what it was in Season 1 and 2 and why it was so much better than season 3 and 4, IMO.

Don’t get me wrong, season 1 and 2 were awesome… I just think that a certain level of “step back” was needed to keep the show from blowing itself out. Either they would have to continuously keep bringing in new people to kill off thus lessening the effect of the deaths since the viewer doesn’t really care that much about them (aka Walking Dead), or you lose the threat of someone dying when everyone always makes it out of highly deadly situation.

Well, that ship sailed after Beth survived getting blown up and Dutton getting riddled by machine gun blasts all over his body.

For me, the show the first two seasons wasn’t great because of the mortal danger the Duttons were always in... because they never were. It was great because there was so much ludicrous violence with everyone else. The show trying to take itself seriously after setting that tone has just bored me to tears.

Get back to indiscriminate killing sprees and guys getting impaled on hitching posts!

I watched Yellowstone once. For some reason it seldom works in my schedule.

Only one question, did Kevin Costner become governor?

I won't mention what Jimmy was doing on the episode I watched. :wink2:

The Jimmy stuff is getting soooooo long and boring. This guy gets hot chicks for no reason and is only now, many moons after season 1, becoming baseline competent. I used to like his story line when it didn't gobble up giant chunks of EVERY episode, but now...meh.
